MSFT job post from 1984

Fascinating – a MSFT job post from 1984 on usenet. Choice excerpts:

“Since the development people report strictly to software engineers, who report directly to chairman/CEO Gates, we never do anything stupid because some manager/MBA/suit-type has power without knowledge. (When we do something stupid, its our own fault!) Likewise, there are no “politics”, just engineering.”

“Microwave ovens, refrigerators, free soda, etc. throughout the buildings” [wait, i thought Google invented giving away free soda :)]
